Forum: GratefulDead Subject: hacked?

Many of you have my email addy. Well, I opened my email this morning and saw over 20 Failure Notice's. In any case, I have not emailed anyone from there for weeks.

I just changed my rather weak password

whats worse is now I sent out a mass email to ALL my contacts thinking CC meant no one else can see others addy's. BCC-CC SHIT!

I'm doomed! :( have a good laugh, Koch!

Hey CC, it could possibly be a virus. Some viruses do precisely what you have described.

Download this, it's free, install it on your computer and run it:

It can co-exist alongside your installed virus checker. You do have one and a firewall installed I hope ?

I was just about to suggest this - sounds like you've been infected by virus or worm. Most likely candidates are gmail and yahoomail. After your virus scans and cleanup, try a really strong password, or new email account.
